DescriptionIf seclusion is more your style, then Price Nature Center, located at 6685 Sheridan Road in Bridgeport Township, is the perfect place for you!

Located only 5 miles south of Saginaw, this park offers over three miles of hiking trails through its 186 acres. Additionally, the park offers one pavilion available for rent with a playground nearby.

A group campground is also available for those interested in rustic camping.

In 1940, James C. Price wrote a letter to Michigan State University, stating he wanted to deed land to the MSU Board of Agriculture. "...To assure it's continued use for the public for public purposes as a memorial to my (Price) family." MSU accepted the land and its Forestry Department used it for field studies and experiments. In 1971, the forest department at MSU announced its intent to sell the property to an agency which could better accommodate its evolving use as a park since many community groups were using Price for camping, picnicking, ect. In 1979, the Price Memorial Forest officially became part of the Saginaw County Parks system.
